About this Cook
I have been in the kitchen since the age of 9yrs old, being the oldest of 5 siblings, my dad who taught me said "that I had to learn to help feed the family and above all it's my Puerto Rican heritage that I learn to defend for myself". I have never looked back, now my 2 daughters where taught the same, my oldest is on her to becoming a Pastry Chef and my 15 yr old will be attending her 1st culinary camp this summer 2013, very proud of them both.
My favorite things to cook
Spanish, Italian, Chinese, My favorite is baking..
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my family and I wake up at the crack of dawn to hand turn an entire pork cooked outside under several layers of banana leaves and oak wood in a man made pit... Then there's our traditional drink called "coquito" made with coconut milk and puerton-rican rum, cold is the best way to drink it...
My cooking triumphs
My 6 layered chocolate devils food cake w/cream cheese icing..
My cooking tragedies
My 1st oven baked roast pork...
